I have been investigating ways of creating my own thermofax screens ,including visiting a tatoo parlour but without much success!I knew about Print Gocco and had seen a demo on http://www.nehoc.aus/ about using the machine to burn a screen mesh. I had got some mesh from http://www.patchworkeshop.de/ and already had the Claire Benn book.I remembered my sister in law had had a machine about twenty years ago and wondered if she still had it ?She donated it as she no longer uses it ,so armed with some new bulbs ,and an image I tried it today.
First image shows machine and my image.Next is the screen after exposure.As you can see it works a treat.
This is a print on paper but using some acrylic paint mixed with a too runny textile medium.
The last was a try on some scrim. The consistency of the medium is too runny so the print is flooded but I will persevere and try different things to acheive the right result.The image is a photo of one of my samples from unit 4 blacked out on Paint Shop Pro.
